'Politically Incorrect': an unveiled account of today's societal problems. 'Politically Incorrect' is the creation of published author, L. M. Henderson, a mother of seven adult children and seven precocious grandchildren. She believes it's time to stand up for what is true, good, and pure-before we see the next generation going down the tubes and losing the freedom from tyranny we have enjoyed for over two hundred years. Because education was important to her from a young age, Linda has earned a bachelor's degree of science and then a master of arts in religion through Liberty University's online degree programs. Even more importantly, though, she has been an Evangelical Christian since 1970. Linda has seen enough of the world to know there is only one answer that can rectify a person's life and their society in general. He is not visible to us in human form, but almost two millennia ago, His empty tomb spoke volumes as to the veracity of His claims. Today, Linda and her husband of thirty-seven years live happily together in a peaceful country village in upstate New York. (more...)
